    Hi,
    Does anybody know any nice GUI software to make backups?

    Are you wanting to make disk image or just sync'd data backups?

    Mainly sync file backups.
    But I would also like to make an image of my linux partition or hard disk.

    Grsync is a good GUI frontend of rsync. Most of the drive imaging software for Linux is CLI based. You can take a look at some of the offerings HERE.

    I use unison to sync data and dd to make a backup of a partition or hdd. Unison is rsync based and has a gui, dd has no gui afaik.

    Grsync is quite nice, but I cannot make authomatic backups neither scheduled backups.
